Building Blocks Afghan

Every pattern in the “Building Blocks” book focuses on the development of a skill while knitting a lovely square. Each square or block builds upon the skills learned in  previous patterns, giving knitters more confidence, knowledge and skill. At the completion of the series, the reward is an abundance of knitting know-how along with 12 gorgeous blocks to assemble into a sampler afghan.

Join us on this journey at knitch! Over the next 12 months, expand your abilities as a knitter and end up with a lovely blanket to show off your new skills!
